Timboon is a picturesque township set amongst natural bushlands, rolling hills and lush pastures. Surrounded by gum trees, koalas, kangaroos and other native species are regularly seen by residents and visitors in and around the township.
Located 235km south west of Melbourne, Timboon is a dairying community that acts as a service centre for the Port Campbell National Park and produces some of the finest gourmet products for the region including fine icecream and fresh berries. Timboon was first settled by the Callaways, English immigrants who selected land in 1875 to the west and north of the present township.
In 1877 the site now known as “Old Timboon” was established and the town began to grow as new settlers were attracted to the area. By 1889 the township of “New Timboon” offered land for sale and had a general store, butcher and blacksmiths by 1891.
